        ABOUT THE ASSESSMENT TESTS

 

>> NEW STUDENT GUIDE  

 

 

 

Since reading, writing and mathematics skills are essential for learning and understanding all subjects, it is helpful for students to know their level of performance in these areas. Testing in these subjects as well as English as a Second Language, will show your educational strengths and needs and can provide useful information for planning your course of study at West Los Angeles College.  

 

Following diligent practice and review in all subject areas of Math, English or ESL you will be able to schedule your Assessment test online.  

 

ASSESSMENT TEST PREPARATION:  

Students are strongly advised to prepare for Assessment testing before attempting the Assessment test. Assessment test preparation can be done through the West ExpressWay in the Academic Preparation Module.
